Colorado Car Camping

Day 1: Wellington Lake, Colorado

Wellington lake is a privately owned lake and campground which is open to the public year-round and was the first stop on our car camping trip through the Colorado high country.

Whether you’re interested in an overnight stay or a fun day trip, Wellington Lake is the perfect venue for fly fishing, off-roading and car-camping. After driving from Fort Collins, Colorado to Wellington Lake we were ready to pop the iKamper X-Cover roof top tent and set up camp. The X-cover’s design eliminates the bulky pvc cover of traditional roof top tents and saves time to be able to assemble the tent in less than 3 minutes. After the first use of the X-Cover it was clear why this roof top tent won the Overland Journal’s coveted Editor’s Choice Award and was also a finalist in the Outdoor Retailer’s Innovation Awards.




The best part about the X-Cover roof top tent is the king-size 2.5” high-density memory foam mattress that can sleep a family of 2 adults & 2 children or up to 3 adults. We slept 4 adults in it comfortably for one night. The X-Cover’s double Sky-view windows offer extra light and fresh air circulation by day, and a view of the stars at night. Wellington Lake offered a great car camping campsite with waterfront access to fulfill our stand up paddle boarding and fly fishing itch.
